23 Mar Stories of life-changing treatment at UW Health
UW Health serves more than 600,000 patients a year.
For many of them, the care is life changing.
It’s not just the world-class health care, provided in partnership with the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics.
It’s the compassion with which patients are treated by the 1,500 physicians and 17,000 staff members, to help them to the best possible outcome.
